Deaths from pedestrian accidents increase again in 2017

A recent rise in pedestrian deaths is being attributed to distracted walkers and drivers using smartphones and other handheld devices. According to research by the Governors Highway Safety Association, more than 6,000 pedestrians lost their lives in 2017. In Georgia, pedestrian deaths rose by 11 percent. While no scientific conclusions have yet to be made, experts believe that distractions as well as intoxicated walking could account for the increase.

Insurtech startup's new wearable tech ideal for workers

Wearable technology from MākuSafe, an insurtech SaaS startup in Des Moines, could be just what employers need to help reduce accidents in their workplace.

The company's branding will ultimately suffer as well.
